The end of a calendar year provides an excellent opportunity to reflect on all that we’ve accomplished. For our communications team, launching LUMA’s blog is at the top of our list. To celebrate, we’ve compiled a list of our most popular blog posts since we launched Posted Notes in April.

Design thinking requires iterative cycles of expansive and focused thinking to better understand people and problems, and then develop ideas and solutions. We refer to this as divergent thinking and convergent thinking. Navigating these moments of divergence and convergence is the key!
